Municipal economic effects and cost-benefit analyses of social housing policy

Estimates based on constructed client histories. NIBR Report 2011:8

The background for this study is the increasing focus in housing policy on disadvantaged groups in the housing market.Central government places a number of instruments at the disposal of local authorities, but it is the municipalities themselves which implement the policies. An effective policy for the disadvantaged requires the different agencies in the municipalities to work closely together. Social housing measures are often mentioned as a precondition for other welfare policy measures to have an effect.Working alongside NAV (The Norwegian Labour and Welfare Service) has become particularly important.
